Just last month, we reported that a Brazilian retailer listed a “Burnout Paradise HD Remaster” in its database. It’s all fine and dandy, except the actual game is not real — or hasn’t been announced just yet.
Well, it seems that bit of rumor is true, as a Burnout Paradise PS4 release is indeed coming true! According to @Renka_schedule (translated by the ever-reliable Gematsu), Burnout Paradise HD Remaster (tentative title) will race out in Japan this March 16, 2018! It’s not known whether the Xbox One or PC will also see the remastered racer.
Those unfamiliar with the game, Burnout Paradise was released in 2008 on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, and was an open-world racer with arcade elements (no sim stuff here, folks!), and was developed by the brilliant minds over at Criterion Games.
Will this Burnout Paradise remaster come out for North America or other territories? We’ve asked EA for a statement and will update the post if we get a response.
